Plan For Your Life.
Contrary to popular belief estate planning is not all about death. Estate planning attorneys are not undertakers or funeral directors. We work with families to help prepare them for all of the crazy twists and turns that life takes. Estate planning offers true peace of mind that no matter what life throws at you, you have a plan in place to handle it.
"My kids are my life."
"My business is my life."
"My friends are my life."
If you've ever uttered these phrases (or something similar) then you have something or someone in your life whom you treasure, someone who is worth protecting. We at Privette Legacy Planning will work with you to establish and safeguard your vision for the future of your family, your business, and the other things you value. We will help you PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE and secure your loved ones' futures.
While it's true that people are living longer than ever, it is not necessarily true that they are living better than ever. With increased life expectancy comes a greater risk of serious illness, dementia, and other debilitating disorders. In my opinion, the worst thing to happen to you is not your death. Rather, the worst thing is to be suddenly incapacitated and incapable of making decisions for yourself. Unless you plan ahead and name someone to step in and act on your behalf, you are giving the courts the power to decide who in your circle of friends and family should be the one to make these decisions on your behalf. If no one steps up to take on the responsibility, then you could be opening yourself up to become a ward of the State.
It is absolutely vital that you put a comprehensive plan in place now while you are capable of expressing your wants and wishes! In other words, you need to PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE, not just your death.
